Mystery Plant: Ground Orchid with clusters of starshapped yellow flowers

This plant is some type of ground orchid. It has a leaf structure similar to Spathoglotis but the flowers are completely different and you can only see them if you look under the leaves as they are at the base of the plant.

I got this one from Malifa, rescuing it from the spot it was growing which was being dug up for a greenhouse where we were going to plant some heirloom tomatoes that we had grafted onto Maxifort tomato rootstock.
